Believe What You Want

Believe what you want. It will probably come down to how indoctrinated you have become. Our minds face the most powerful propaganda and manipulation construct ever in the recent history of human kind. Information is powerful. Controlling people's thoughts is a science. Society has been ravaged by this science. It makes you stay within the yellow lines, it makes you never question authority, it gives you a false sense of security. It makes you ridicule others for thinking differently. It prevents you from thinking for yourself. It dulls your emotions to the point of zombieism. It makes every conceivable crime acceptable, and every ridicules minor infraction punishable. It has turned society inside out from anything resembling decency and morally just. It allows the government to become a fascist police state, and breaches every citizens god given rights.

You may not realize the extent you've been brainwashed. You do feel something is very wrong around you. It has been creeping in the background for a long time. I think I first realized that something was amiss when I was a child. I was five years old. I watched the news about the Vietnam war, the civil rights movement ( the black panthers made a huge impression on me), and all of the dramatic change that was in the air. I think on some level I sensed all the struggles and battles that were being waged. Is it any wonder I have rebelliously challenged just about everything I was ever taught in life? What has really got my attention lately is I feel we are returning to another cycle of that exact same time frame. I think the creators of the system were being heavily challenged then. If there was just a bit more support and awareness, imagine how the world would be today if JFK and Dr. Martin Luther King had not been assassinated and lived long, full, lives guiding our society. That of course would have meant that the ruthless, monolithic, conspirators, the architects of the military industrial social complex, would have been defeated. Instead of course they are alive and well and doing a swell job at making peoples lives miserable. However, something is different this time around.

Like I said, believe what you want. Those two men I made reference to, had one glaring thing in common. They both believed in true freedom beyond anything else. They were so sure they willingly gave their lives for it. They knew they were making incredible progress at empowering people. The architects of disaster and deceit made damn well sure that not only did they crush the dreams but also the ideas and plans of action that each man put into place. The momentum of the time did play out in the halting of the war, but unfortunately the movements were quickly neutralized through a very effective, organized effort of disinformation and deception that quickly divided and conquered the power of the people. The powers that be would never underestimate the power of believing in freedom ever again. Until now that is.

It is said that power corrupts. Corruption breeds greed. Greed blinds the beholder of justice. Lack of justice inhibits liberty. Withhold liberty and you constrict freedom. Prevent freedom means you censor and withhold rights. Only dictators do these things. Open your eyes now. What is happening to your rights? It is said the true test of whether you are free is if you have the right to disagree, file grievance, or demand redress of the government. Do you have those rights? You also know freedom by your right to peaceably assemble. Can you get together with thousands of your friends to peacefully demonstrate your right to disagree? You can but you will face goon squads in body armor, clubbing and tazing you, or blasting you with a sonic canon, or shooting pepper spray in your face. Open your eyes now. What is happening to your rights?

In 2008 your government stole trillions of your dollars to give to private international bankers. It was the largest theft to date, in history. You will notice this in the falling property values, diminished retirement accounts, and loss of value of the dollar. You will also find out that most of your country's gold has been stolen, and replaced with fake gold bars. The truth is your government is bankrupt beyond any reasonable hope. The trillions borrowed to keep the criminals in business is done so at the cost of your sweat equity, and your children's, and theirs for generations to come. You are told that this is a freak thing that happened, and nobody saw it coming. Open your eyes now. This was planned all along. They decided to inflate the bubble one last time. The economy is not getting better. It is getting far worse. Unless things are changed very quickly we will be in the great collapse! No depression. Collapse. Believe what you want. It is very likely.

The future, despite some very nasty indicators is not all doom and gloom. There are a lot of decent, honest people out in the world. Unfortunately not so much in the U.S. We should realize that the days of gluttony and waste are soon to be history. Instead of providing societal needs such as infrastructure, decent medical care, decent jobs, our government in conjunction with the too big to fails, are pocketing the country's wealth. We have blasted right past socialism into fascism without even looking back. So all you right wingers screaming Obama is a socialist, wake up. Socialism will look good when this has played out. All of you left wingers out there, hate to tell you, your new boss is the same as the old boss. Here's the catch. We will have to shatter the old system to have a chance. That means we need help from the outside. The fact of the matter is, there will be changes. This is an international problem. It will require an international solution. This can happen if we can muster the strength, just like in the 60's, to stop the wars. That is crucial. Britain is already way ahead of us with investigating the Iraq war. It is an illegal war. The down side is these wars are for control of oil. The U.S. is trying to make the rest of the world continue to buy our debt by attempting to hold the planets oil for ransom. Iran will be the proof of that. Iran is the line in the sand for the rest of the world also. World War 3 is oh so close to reality. And I said it wasn't all doom and gloom! Again the bright spot is there can be a way out, if we can regain control of our war faring government. We no longer have a choice.

This small detail can be accomplished by taking to the streets. Part of the crotch bomber bullshit is to try to make it difficult to travel. Can't have a revolution unless we can get to Washington! What will the airlines say about all those buckets of tar and sacks of feathers? Maybe pitchforks would be more appropriate for air travel. In all seriousness it is vital to put pressure on them. The war rhetoric is going through the roof right now. When all else fails they will attempt a big terrorist attack. This time we must keep our heads, not buy into the bullshit, and stand up to them in mass, and say no way! My guess is they will knock out the Internet this time, to keep information from spreading. The upshot is don't fall for it! Be aware of who benefits from an act of crime. This attempt wont be a crotch bomb. It will be big. Iran is a big war. They will need a big reason to fight it. We must see through the bullshit, and respond quickly. You can do this best by being prepared to watch closely and not be afraid. Then connect with your family and friends and educate them about what is happening and why it's happening. As I said in the beginning, our minds face the most powerful propaganda and deceit we have ever faced. If you can see through the charade it loses it's power to control you. You empower yourself and others then. That's what this is all about. Believe what you want, I believe we can make a difference, for ourselves and our loved ones. At the very least, we have to try!

"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places - and there are so many - where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."
